Material heterogeneity or stress concentration: the thermoelastic response from woven composite materials subjected to cyclic fatigue
Fruehmann, R.K., Dulieu-Barton, J.M. and Quinn, S. (2009) Material heterogeneity or stress concentration: the thermoelastic response from woven composite materials subjected to cyclic fatigue. In, 17th International Conference on Composite Materials, Edinburgh, UK, 27 - 29 Jul 2009. London, UK, IOM Communications Ltd8pp.
A study of the growth of fatigue damage in 2 x 2 twill woven composite materials,
subjected to cyclic tensile loading are described. Thermoelastic stress analysis (TSA) is
used to monitor the stress field. As a result of the damage, a net reduction in the
thermoelastic signal is observed. Laminates are found to be more resistant to fatigue.
